Walk for A.Cure along the Grand Union Canal
27 August 2011
Ade Cure, shown right with his wife Jane, was guest speaker at our last President’s Dinner at the House of Lords. He was a proud, strong, determined man and raised over £30,000 for kidney cancer, most of which was donated to the James Whale Fund before he died of kidney cancer in March 2011 after a four year fight.
He had such a positive attitude to life that his brother-in-law Andy Coleman and Jane plan to take on this challenge in Ade’s memory, and are determined to smash the £10,000 target set for fund raising.
The walk will begin on Saturday 27 August, from Gas Street Basin in Birmingham (shown above), and will involve walking 144.5 miles along the Grand Union Canal to finish on Saturday 3 September in Little Venice, London. The route is as follows:
Sat 27 Aug Gas Street Basin to Rowington (bridge 62)
Sun 28 Aug Rowington (bridge 62) to Napton (bridge 108)
Mon 29 Aug Napton (bridge 108) to Bugbrooke (bridge 35)
Tues 30 Aug Bugbrooke (bridge 35) to Wolverton (bridge 76a)
Wed 31 Aug Wolverton (bridge 76a) to Linslade (bridge 115a)
Thur 1 Sept Linslade (bridge 115a) to Hemel (bridge 150)
Fri 2 Sept Hemel (bridge 150) to Cowley (bridge 190)
Sat 3 Sept Cowley (bridge 190) to Little Venice
